I had lunch with one of my dear girlfriends on Monday. We were talking and eating and crying and laughing - you know, all those things you do during lunch at Chick-fil-a with a sweet friend you have not seen in a while.
She asked me about how Christopher and I were doing. And I started telling her about our Friday night "date" this weekend - working on our cabinets in the kitchen. I say "date" because we love working on things. It's a hobby - something we both enjoy. We love doing things TOGETHER. Not because we are on a quest to have the latest and greatest "home renovation" project - believe me, someone is already out there coming up with the next latest and greatest thing. There is no way you can keep up.
We just enjoy sketching out plans on scraps pieces of paper, measuring, re-measuring, going to Home Depot, dreaming of ideas together, searching the internet for "how-to's" and inspiration photos - WE JUST LIKE TO DO THAT KIND OF STUFF.
And there are lots of times we would rather spend $50 on wood, crown molding and paint than to spend $50 going to the movies and dinner. Of course, we have those kind of dates too from time to time.
We just like hanging out together. And we get all giddy when the kiddos are napping or in bed for the night and we know we have something to work.
That's us. And I love our little "me + him" team.
I also love sweet baby faces that melt my heart. I just can't bear to think that my little guy is going to fall in love with another girl one day. hehe.
